The Witcher 3’s Free Manual Being Ripped Off and Sold
Robert Ainsworth / 1 year ago
The latest and most talked about game release recently is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It was released earlier this week and since the launch has been pretty popular, it’s even caused a reddit war between Nvidia and AMD!
One thing most gamers were surprised with was the fact the game includes an actual manual, which is very unusual when taking into consideration that most modern-day games have in-game walkthroughs and guides. Unfortunately, some are taking advantage of Projekt Red’s unusual move by scanning the manual and selling it online as a booklet.
The Witcher 3’s game manual is currently available for sale on the Google Play Store. However it is not a legit copy. The publisher is “Markelov”, if this was a legitimate digital copy of The Witcher 3’s manual, it would show that it was published by CD Projekt RED. The digital booklet has been marked down from $10 to $8, is 9-pages long, and the description is very poor as it describes the game itself and not the manual or its contents.
The Witcher 3 is one of this year’s most awaited games, to see something like this happen is a shame. Hopefully Google will see that people are taking advantage of the developers unusual move and remove it from the store.
